Beach Conditions

Shuswap Lake located in the heart of the Shuswap Country region contains four arms in the shape of the letter H: Salmon Arm (southwest) Anstey Arm (northeast) Seymour Arm (north) and the main lake Shuswap Arm (west). The name is derived from the Shuswap or Sewepemc First Nations people who have occupied the region for over 4000 years.There are various activities available throughout the region in designated areas such as waterskiing wakeboarding swimming and canoeing. Along the shoreline are also many provincial parks the largest being Shuswap Lake Provincial Park.All the water levels of Shuswap Lake act as one water system as water levels all rise and fall together typically fifteen or so feet in the late spring and early summer and then lower through the balance of the summer and through the fall. It is also the site where salmon return to complete their life cycle making it the largest run of sockeye salmon the largest happening once every four years.Attention: Due to high water levels and flooding there is an increased amount of debris (logs etc.) in Shuswap Lakes. There may also be increased bacterial levels in the lake water. High use beaches are being monitored and swim advisories will be posted if necessary. Swimmers should make efforts not to ingest lake water and swim with caution when near debris. Children should be closely supervised.
